Jogoya Japanese Buffet - Field Report

When : 5th August 2006, Time : 6pm ~ 9.30pm
Where : Jogoya, Relish Floor, Starhill
Who : Me, my gf, Sifu Yip & Meowmeow
Damage : RM 101.25/person plus taxes
Enviroment : Cosy, Classy, Good place to impress a girl on your 1st date.

Field Report : Starhill had upgraded so much, instead of the normal number flooring (eg : Ground Floor, 1st Floor, etc), it had a special name designated for each floor. Parked my car @ Starhill Gallery, flat rate RM 5. Entered the lift, we were just guessing the floor the restaurant suppose to be. It was RELISH floor. It was 6pm, already people mountain people sea. I was made to wonder, the new generation of new breed bengs & lians r so rich to enjoy such a luxury. Waited for Sifu & Meow, they went to the wrong floor becos they were conned by Meow's colleague. Have to make our payment at the counter. It was RM 405 for 4 persons in total. We went in, were guided to our reserved area. Quite nice & cosy. We sat very near to the area where they placed gigantic fresh oysters.

While we were seated, a guy in a uniform explain to us as it was our very 1st experience there. There are 2 stove and a few paper clips on the table. The waiter is explaining to us the whole thing, but we were blurr as he spoke in a language which I found it hard to understand. I just nodded and said OK.

So we went on our quest, first thing my gf grabbed was a full plate of oysters and sashimi. The buffet counter is simply huge. They have all this fresh raw stuff (sashimi,oyster,squid,etc) at one area. Then a chinese cuisine counter where they serve various dim sums. Procced on, u will come to Indian cuisine counter, with steak cooked in curries. Next to it Italianis with Pastas, Chicken Pie, etc. Then the teriyaki & teppanyaki counter. Drink counter, dessert counter. A dedicated coffee area. I just could not take any picture and only manage to take a snap shot on the dessert area. Too many counters lar... I do not think I mentioned it all here...


Overall : Suffering!!! Too many good food which some we are unable to try. Worth every single ringgit & cents.

My advice : Go in a group, perhaps 10 will be good, as you will be given a VIP card then you can enjoy additional stuff like King Crab which is only served for VIPS.

master yip... that's a good one... the japanese always thought their food is prepared only best by them... but they never realise that chinese is the best business man in the world... dont look down on chinese

Master_Yip said...

kenji said...

maybe is the best among all of the japanese restaurant in KL.
but, i tell u 1 thing, u all kena tipu, because it not original Japanese food.

Michael Song said...

that is why i said japanese are quite dumb... the people who open the business is chinese, they use japanese name becos it is a trend, but instead of all japanese food, they also offer varieties to capture other type of customers... kenji, sometimes u just too naive...

kenji said...

im not naive. because u all peoples just follow the trend, thats y everything lost thier own originality.

Michael Song said...

u not naive, u accusing us of following trends??? how about the postings u put in ur blog about the latest hairstyle, latest Dior Hommes fashion??? r u following trend or being yourself? You have many many discrepancies in u... we want back the ORIGINAL kenji we used to know... Be ORIGINAL, dont b a pirate.

I never follow the trend, I do all the things be4 the trend coming.
Im always be myself, never follow somebody or trend.
Im always try to be market leader not market follower.
